UPPA Assessor Course

Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

The Level 3 UPPA Assessor course is a knowledge based qualification that studies the theory behind being an assessor. It doesn’t actually qualify you to assess in the learning environment nor in the work environment. It simply provides you with the knowledge behind assessment;  If you want to assess in both of these environments, then we would highly recommend the CAVA qualification.
